Many truck accidents result from truck drivers purposefully violating State and Federal law in an effort to arrive to a destination early or increase their payload. Such actions can result in a motor vehicle that is unsafe for the road or a driver that is fatigued and unable to drive safely. Regardless, either circumstance can have potentially deadly consequences. There are Federal laws governing how many hours a truck driver can operate his or her vehicle and how many hours he or she must rest in a 24-hour period. If a driver violates any of these laws, there can be severe civil and criminal penalties. Driver fatigue can significantly impair a driver’s judgment and ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Because of a commercial truck’s potential to cause damage in the event of an accident – commercial trucks weigh significantly more than standard motor vehicles and their kinetic energy is greater by a factor of magnitudes – truck drivers have a higher standard of duty than everyday motorists. The truck accident lawyers at our Chico, Roseville, and Sacramento-area offices will make sure that they are held to this standard. Truck drivers have a legal and professional duty to abide by State and Federal traffic laws, commercial regulations, and a standard of reasonable behavior. In the event of a truck accident, the lawyers at our Chico, Roseville, and Sacramento offices can determine not only which party was at fault in the accident, but if the truck driver failed in his or her professional duties as well.
